Black Australorp or Jersey Giant?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I got this chick at a TSC from a bin of straight run Barred Rocks. It's clearly not a Barred Rock, but I can't tell if it's an Australorp or a Jersey Giant. I see posts about the feet color, but I still can't tell. (It's also noticeably larger than the Barred Rocks.) I also was looking for some confirmation that is in fact a cockerel; I assumed it was being that none of the other chicks have red on their head yet, but I'm still new to this. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Cockerel :3 And I dont think I know enough about Jersey's or Australorps to really give you my estimate, sorry ^^;

I'me leaning towards Black Australorp, and yes it looks like a cockerel.
